10 Best iOS Endless Running Games
A 10 best endless running games list was a lot of fun to put together because it’s great to see how creative developers can get with an endless theme. And there are some creative — and crazy — ideas for endless running games in the App Store. Hopefully you’ll discover some new gems in this list or remind yourself that you need to try and beat your old score on a familiar favorite.
Tiny Wings is a different kind of endless runner. The goal is to get to as many islands as you can before the sun sets and night catches up to your bird. Simple one touch controls make the game easy to play but difficult to master. Developer Andreas Illiger is always updating the game, and just added more levels, retina display, more birds to choose from and a cool new racing feature called Flight School. Tiny Birds is a great addition to your endless runner collection.
Robot Unicorn Attack
I don't even know where to begin with Robot Unicorn Attack. To be honest, this may be one of the weirdest games I've ever played.

It's cheese poured on top of weird poured on top of crazy and it all just seems to work.

Keep the chain going to keep your running streak alive. Lose a zombie? Just eat more humans! You'll be hooked the moment you press Play.
It's about time Sonic entered the world of endless runners. Who better to join the genre than the guy who sort of trademarked running like a bat out of hell? Sonic may not re-invent the genre, but the colorful graphics, blazing speed and tight controls Sonic Ball our blue hedgehog straight onto our list. A few upgrades to the game by Sega, and who knows? Sonic could find himself speeding up to the top of the 10 Best Endless Running Games list sooner rather than later.

What makes an endless runner great? When it's so addicting that you can't stop playing it to see if you can make it just a little bit farther than before.
